Yes, yes, I'm sure you thought you'd seen the last of me, didn't you?
That's right! Your appearance at the auction made me realize you won't give up so easily - so I'm here to end this once and for all. If I can't have the Golden Monkey... No one will!
I can't keep pretending, I can't keep lying to YourName! Vivian. Hand over the monkey.
And why would I ever do something like that, Michigan?
Hold on - YourName, I owe you an apology. I haven't been honest with you. The truth is... I was trying to push you away to protect you. Vivian started threatening me with you, started making all sorts of crazy claims and... At first I didn't care, I thought, "no way she could do that!" but then... I started getting closer to you. I started to worry, what if Vivian wasn't bluffing? What if something happened to you because of me? I couldn't take it anymore! So I handed over the Golden Monkey of Papeete. I betrayed you, I tried as hard as I could to get you to give up but you just wouldn't!
1 I don't give up. 2 I'm sorry.
1 Trust me, I know. But I'm going to make this right... Vivian! You want to know why you'll be handing that Golden Monkey over to Margaret? I'll tell you! 2 No, I'm the one who's sorry. I never should have lied to you. I'm going to make this right. Vivian! You want to know why you'll be handing that Golden Monkey over to Margaret? I'll tell you!
1 & 2 Please do.
When we were working together for that brief, horrible time... I used that misery for good. I went through your files and took some very, very interesting records. I'm willing to bet you haven't paid ANY tax on all these treasures you've been selling, have you?
But you... and the- How did you find those files! You can't do that!
Hand over the monkey.
Argh! I can't believe this! I was so smart, so cunning! How could I have overlooked such a small, tax based detail!
But you did...
Fine! Enough! You win this round... but I won't be tricked again! You mark my words! Have you marked them?!
YourName! We've done it! We've really, truly done it! Your help was invaluable, this never would have been possible without the work you and Michigan did. Really, from the bottom of my heart... I thank you.
Now, let's not waste a perfectly good party! Let's take glamorous pictures, eat delicious food, and revel in our success!
Sounds good to me!
YourName, I'm so happy everything worked out but... I know I messed up, I really thought I was doing the right thing. I didn't want anything bad to happen to you. After getting to know you a little, I really valued our friendship. I thought... by sacrificing that you wouldn't have to be involved in this crazy thing anymore. I really messed up, and I know it's probably a long shot but... do you think you could ever forgive me?
1 Of course! 2 No...
1 Really? Really, really? I'm so relieved! I'm so glad we can stay friends. Thanks for giving me a second chance, YourName. 2 O-okay. I understand. I know it was a lot that happened, I wouldn't want to trust me again either.
I can't believe I was beaten by you...
Thank you so much, YourName. You saved the museum, and honestly, probably my career! I owe you so much!
We made a good team, YourName. I'm just glad the Golden Monkey of Papeete is safe and sound, and available for everyone to enjoy it.
YourName, I truly can't thank you enough for all you did. The Golden Monkey of Papeete has been saved from its fate of sitting locked up in a room for only one person to enjoy. Now, the world can appreciate the craftsmanship and history of this beautiful piece. Thank you again for everything!
It was my pleasure!
If I ever need help tracking down another priceless artifact, I know JUST who to call!
Me, of course! +500
